Williamsville is a quaint, 200-year-old village just northeast of Buffalo, New York, that packs some old-fashioned charm with easily accessible walking routes and two parks perfect for walking with a dog. Anchored by Main Street, Williamsville is lined by boutiques, spas, cafes, bakeries, brewing companies, and restaurants, a few of which are dog-friendly. Off the main strip, the streets are heavily shaded by well-established trees, examples of older Western New York homes and architecture, and winding, quiet roads. The village often holds multiple festivals and local road races, and food trucks abound along Main Street. If you're looking for a place to walk your dog that is more grass than concrete, visit Island Park and Amherst State Park, both within walking distance from the village proper. These parks have plenty of room for dogs to stretch, play, run, or relax in the shade.

During the spring and summer, temperatures can rise rapidly, and the shopping areas along the sidewalks may be too hot for a dog's paws, so take care to walk the dog on the grass and avoid concrete in those circumstances. Fall is one of the most comfortable and beautiful times of year in Williamsville, but be sure to have rain gear with you in case of a storm. Winters can be windy and cold, and appropriate winter attire for you and the dog will be necessary.

The village of Williamsville is very flat in the shopping district around Main Street and through many of the arteries off of the strip. Some neighborhoods to the north of Main Street do contain large rolling hills, but nothing that is steep or strenuous. The majority of streets are cast in the shade making for cool, comfortable walking conditions on sunny days. Williamsville homes are mostly older colonials that are well-kept and display gorgeous gardens during the spring through the fall season. If you want to stick to the Main Street shopping and eating areas, there are some local restaurants as well as national chains that are pet-friendly and allow dogs on their patios.

Williamsville has many greenways off of the Main Street shopping district. Two local parks, Island Park and Amherst State Park, allow dogs and offer both shade and room for dogs to run and play. However, dogs need to be kept on a leash and cleaned up after. Doggie waste bags are available at both locations for clean-up purposes. Amherst State Park also offers nature trails for leisurely walks. Many small animals such as squirrels, chipmunks, rabbits, and a variety of birds call this park home, so it's essential to keep dogs with strong prey drives secured in this area. Be aware that the park's trails are also used by other walkers, hikers, and runners, and dogs need to be under a walker's control at all times.
